The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) is an American anti-sexual assault organization, the largest in the United States.[1] RAINN operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline and carries out programs to prevent sexual assault, help victims, and to ensure that rapists are brought to justice.

RAINN was founded in 1994 by Scott Berkowitz and Tori Amos. Tori Amos was the organization's first spokesperson.[2][3][4] Christina Ricci is RAINN's current national spokesperson and a member of its National Leadership Council.[5]

National Sexual Assault HotlineEdit

The National Sexual Assault Hotline (1-800-656-HOPE) is a 24-hour, toll-free phone service that automatically and anonymously links callers to the nearest RAINN-associated rape crisis center with a counselor able to respond to the call. More than 1,100 local partnership are associated with RAINN to provide sexual assault victims with free, confidential services.[6] RAINN also provides anonymous, on-line crisis support through its National Sexual Assault Online Hotline via instant messaging.[7]
